Romance, mob wars and murder mysteries are nothing extraordinary in the fictional city of Port Charles, New York. This summer, however, things are about to get wickedly wild as the show brings back a deranged artist who wants nothing more than to blur the lines between fiction and reality. Franco, played by James Franco, surfaces on General Hospital once again to plot his ultimate revenge against Jason Morgan (Steve Burton).

Franco eventually confronted Jason about how much he idolizes his work, even calling it art and telling Jason they are the same. But Jason couldn‘t care less while Franco is less than thrilled with Jason‘s lack of respect for Franco or his work. Since then, he‘s been sending Jason several messages--hinting that he‘s back...and he‘s dead serious.  Read more »

Here‘s your BuddyTV High Five: The five big moments and questions from today‘s episode of General Hospital, "June 8th 2011."High Five Highlights:5. Friendship was the name of the game in today‘s episode. While Sam and Abby discussed Abby‘s relationship with Michael and Maxie reconnected with Spinelli, Nikolas went to Robin about his concern that Elizabeth‘s grief might be compromising her job performance. It is good to know these characters can still rely on their friends in times of need.4. Kristina went to big sis Sam for relationship advice. Though Sam has plenty of failed relationships in her past, she was right to warn Kristina that her crush on Ethan may be one-sided and that getting involved with someone who is still legally married is never a good idea.3. While everyone assumed Lisa had fled from Port Charles as quickly as possible, the unstable doc was still lurking around town. Lisa went to Johnny for help, not realizing that her former lover had just told Patrick that he realized Lisa was too far gone and he would not be tricked into helping her again. Perhaps Johnny will change his tune now that Lisa has arrived on his door-step.2. Abby may want to find a new place to live, preferably with better security so crazy Anthony can‘t drop by whenever he wants. Anthony claimed he was there to offer Abby a new job opportunity but in truth, he was there to provoke Michael. And since Michael showed up just in time to see the two together, Anthony‘s plan will probably work.1. Former Days of Our Lives star Martha Madison made her first appearance as Elizabeth Webber. Madison was brought in to sub for Rebecca Herbst while Herbst recovers from viral meningitis. The recast is temporary and Madison‘s first performance was solid.  Read more »

When Olivia reminded Elizabeth that she had asked Steve to perform this task, Elizabeth apologized and confessed that she thought she might be losing it.4. Love is back in the air. Abby told Michael that while she still does not approve of his desire to enter the mob, she was wrong for judging him and she accepts him for who he is. The couple reunited.3. The trip of a lifetime? Kristina decided to join Ethan as he traveled to the Dominican Republic for a quickie divorce. The only problem? Kristina did not tell her parents where she was going. I‘m thinking her folks might have a bit of an over-reaction once they find out what their little girl is up to.2. Parents know best, don‘t they? Sonny, Carly, and Alexis started the day by planning Michael and Kristina‘s graduation party. However, with Kristina acting reckless in an attempt to win Ethan‘s love and Michael still insisting on skipping college to join the mob, I don‘t think these proud moms and dad have much to celebrate.1. Lisa and Anthony would make a great team. The former doc took a page out of Mr. Z‘s book and persuaded Johnny into agreeing to help her flee the country. Unfortunately, Anthony then flipped the script by manipulating Lisa into staying in town and fighting her enemies rather than running away.  Read more »

While some of our characters were already in Florida and the Dominican Republic, Maxie gave Dante and Lulu the tickets (to France) she had purchased for her own romantic rendezvous with Matt. Unfortunately, Lulu was so caught up in her father‘s problems that she refused to leave town.3. Sam better not be the jealous type. Jason was visited two pretty, young blondes today. Lulu pleaded with Jason to let her father live upon his return to town, while Maxie dropped by to apologize for sending Lulu Jason‘s way. Tongues were involved but only used for talking.2. Lulu‘s downward spiral continued. Luke‘s little girl lashed out at anyone who dared to speak ill of her beloved daddy, running on the dangerous mix of anger and booze. Luke is proof enough that no good can come of using alcohol to fuel your rage and one can only hope that Lulu‘s loved ones manage to save her before she really does become a chip off the old block.1. Alexis and Sonny showed up just in time to stop a certain proceeding. Luckily for the worried parents, Kristina was not marrying Ethan but merely helping him get his divorce. Ethan and Kristina shippers still had plenty to celebrate though, with the duo growing closer by the day.  Read more »

Kids say the darndest things: Kristina told her loving parents that they should butt outof her life, as she is now an adult and should be allowed to make her own choices. Sonny andAlexis did not agree.2. Love isn‘t conditional: Lucky told Luke he wanted him in his life, regardless of whatLuke has done. Unfortunately, as far as Luke was concerned, it was too little too late and Luckyreturned home without his father. With his son and his dad seemingly lost to him, I think we areall glad Lucky had new wife Siobhan to turn to.1. Lisa‘s got a plan, which can only mean chaos is right around the corner: Anthonywas so impressed with Lisa‘s plan (which was sadly discussed off-screen) that he said he woulddo everything he could to support her in her new (probably psychotic) endeavor.
